I'm am excited that the Monte Sano Arts Festival is back this year! It's Saturday, September 21, 9am-5pm and I will be set up with my full array of items. This year I'm also bringing some of the leather journals I have been recently making as well as my newest paintings. I will be introducing some new Red Girls that have a bit of a bite to them.

But the innocent Woodlanders will also be there to balance them out.

If you miss Monte Sano, my last show of the year will be the Art Stroll at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens, October 5 10am-4pm. Come out and say hello!

A New Year!

woodland creature myst

A new year and some new paintings!  Introducing my newest paintings that I'm calling my Woodland Creatures.  They are protectors of the forests and the critters that live within them. After a previous year of silly monsters, these warriors are a bit more intense.  We can all do a bit to protect our own forests and lands. I plan to donate a portion of the sale of these to our local landtrust fund.

This year I'm hoping to teach more classes in art journalling and maybe even some book making. I'm excited about the upcoming year and seeing what all it will bring.

Happy New Year to you all and may 2013 find you in good heath and with good friends and family.
